We all know the original tale of Cinderella. The stepfamily who harassed Cinderella for years, The Ball Cinderella went to, and the shoe she lost. The fairy godmother and of course the prince who she marries at the end.
Now, scratch all the beliefs you have about Cinderella and step into a new story. A story where Cinderella stands up for her beliefs, where the prince is no longer a brainless, nameless character and a fairy godmother who doesn’t just give a dress and pretty shoes.
Meet a new and more realistic Cinderella…
– “Well, isn’t this interesting?” The prince looked at Cinderella, who was crouching down behind the cabinet. “I wonder what a little mouse like you is doing here.” He grinned and Cinderella’s throat was as dry as a desert… –
EasyTiger: This is a great humorous take on the Cinderella fairytale. I like how the author incorporates Cinderella into the narrator’s telling of the tale, constantly interrupting, correcting or telling them to hurry up. It’s funny to hear Cinderella act this way as she is traditionally such a bland, sweet and ass-kissing character. Great spin on things, makes the story far more interesting. Also loved how this story makes Cinderella’s real mission at the palace to steal the king’s crown. Well written, smooth prose, great humor. A great read!
SolAce: For a tale that most readers and writers alike have heard, this was presented in a different light— with an equally different style. Our author has decided to descend down those *censored*, crystal steps from heaven and participate in a… strange situation? Fairy Go— uhhh Boss, are you part of the mafia?…
Ahem, other than the weird dialogue from earlier, this is my advice to you. I do recommend maybe cutting out some of the author and Cinderella’s conversations like the recap/ rewind since it does break off the flow of the story for me; however, I still do feel like it, to a certain degree, makes the story a unique case in itself. This is a decision you should think about as others such as myself may find this slightly weird.
However, other than this, I find it a bemusing twist of a tale and hope you continue to keep up the hard work, Author !
Saeven07: Six chapters in and I do like how the setting was described. The ball’s glamour was easy to picture with how you write it. The construction of the sentences were alright although there were a few grammatical errors here and there, a mistake everyone has and could be easily edited.
How the story’s being told is a bit interesting, though, as the MC talks to the narrator a lot. So I’m a bit confused if the narrator is also a character of the story? There are styles like that, as I’ve read some, but if it is for a novel I think you should have said so beforehand. If it is not really a part of it and you want the main character to throw side comments as she goes along with what she’s experiencing, considering first person POV might work.
So far, this is all that I’ve observed. I do hope you’ll continue writing and developing your craft. Cheers to you!
Glenstonx: Hi author!
I was intrigued by the synopsis and other people’s review, what could be the other side or story of cinderella. However, there are some things I saw and wished to help you.
I noticed your writing style is unique here in webnovel but I have encountered such in other platforms. The way you, as an author and narrator of the story can interact with the characters in the story is a great play of perspective but personally, I think it’s all a babble to get the word counts to rise to the goal limit but it does not seem to be that case since your chapters probably has under a thousand, it’s fun and easy to read
There are line and scenes that I wish you would have written better but its also fun to just play with words and imagination
This seems to be comedy at first but I guess it isn’t? anyway, I hope you update often. Readers does not want to read a book that seems dead
that’s all for the review, keep writing and good luck author!
Shionokami: Alright, a story about cinderella, but not the one we all know!
Before I start I have to say that, I’m really impressed by the way the author grabbed a very well known story and turned it into something enjoyable and fun!
Now, review time! First off the setting, there isn’t a lot to say, it’s cinderella so I think that almost everyone has heard of her atleast once, but make no mistake, because this time around, things are quite different and that’s a plus! And this brings me now to the characters that are both well written and funny, but the medal has to go to the prince, such a chad, if he was like that in the original, I would have liked it a lot more!
Now, as for the writting it’s really good, with good descriptions and no mistakes whatsoever, that I took notice off!
All in all, this is a very well written story that takes a spin on the original cinderella and made (in my opinion) a lot better!
P.S: Just asking, but while reading this, it gave me a lot of shoujo vibes, are you perhaps, a fan of shoujo stories, author?
